Hi all, We are planning a 3 month trip this summer/fall. I hope to find a sitter who will love staying on our little farm and won’t be surprised or disappointed by the realities of rural life (Lots of wildlife! Beautiful views! Sometimes smells like poop!). I’d like someone who will handle small issues that arise but knows if and when we need to be contacted. I’ve provided a large binder of info and help numbers, etc. The house is in great shape and, aside from things I can’t control (natural disasters, power outages) I don’t envision any crises, but you never know. I want to do everything possible to create a scenario where it’s an enjoyable getaway for both of us and not a strain in these unpredictable times. I also wish to limit responses to those who believe they are a really good fit as I hate turning people down
Assuming this isn’t all too much to ask from a sitter, where would I put this info in my listing? I’m not sure what sitters see when I post dates, is it under Responsibilities? As a sitter, what would give you comfort in taking a long term sit like this? What concerns might you have? I’ve never had such a long trip planned, I appreciate any input!
